Discovering Dry Babe® ~ The Fabric of a Good Night’s Sleep

After my first night of extremely intense night sweats due to perimenopause, I found myself lying in sheets that were a little bit more than damp. It was a rude awakening; and the experience became even more eventful when my husband asked me a somewhat startling question as a result of it. Because of that experience, I decided to write an article, Perimenopause , Hot Flashes and Night Sweats; At Least I Hope It’s Sweat!

During my research to write the above article, I ran across a website for Dry Babe®. Dry Babe®’s home page states: “Experience the Dry Babe® Difference . . . dedicated to providing women who are experiencing night sweats with sleepwear that is absorbent and attractive . . .” I made a mental bookmark of this site thinking that I would return someday.

Now this was something I had never heard of – absorbent sleepwear for night sweats. Of course, I had never needed something like this before either!

I wrote the article that same day, and published it on January 5, 2012. What a way to bring in the New Year! It certainly was not what I had in mind!

Imagine my surprise when Dry Babe® commented on my article, and offered to let me try it out! I responded immediately. I’m no dummy!

I waited anxiously for the sleepwear to arrive in the mail. Upon arrival, I opened the package and was pleasantly surprised by the luxurious feel of the fabric and the vibrancy of the fabric’s color.

So I began wearing it immediately. Well, I did wait for it to get dark! Now, at last, I was prepared for the onslaught of the intense night sweats.

Waiting for the Night Sweats

A week and a half later, after having worn the gown every night and washing it during the day, I was disappointed that the night sweats had not made an appearance. I am having a hard time believing that I was really disappointed, but it’s true. How was I supposed to write a review without the presence of perspiration (a pretty word for sweat)?

Last night, I did not wear the Dry Babe® sleepwear. And last night I experienced the milder night sweats that have plagued me so many nights over the years – waking up hot, throwing off the covers, freezing a few minutes later, and pulling the covers back on, only to repeat the process numerous times throughout the night.

In the morning, I suddenly had a revelation. I had been experiencing the milder night sweats all along, just like usual, but the Dry Babe® sleepwear had done exactly what it had been designed to do. It had provided me with night after night of a sound and comfortable sleep, no longer interrupted by the cycle of hot and cold caused by night sweats.

Wendy Collett, ingenious owner and founder of Dry Babe sleepwear shares, "I found just how important sleeping through the night is once night sweats stole that ability away. After trying everything available on the market and finding no relief, I was driven to find the night sweat sleep solution for myself and for all the other "hot" mamas out there."

Dry Babe® Keeps Hot Babes Cool and Dry

Dry Babe® sleepwear is constructed from a special blend of cotton and polyester, Woven Terry Velour. This special blend is able to utilize the properties of both cotton and polyester to provide both absorption and wicking capabilities. These capabilities redirect moisture away from the body, keeping you dry even under the covers, allowing you to wake up rested and refreshed.

How does Dry Babe® sleepwear keep you cool and dry:

  • By Absorbing Moisture
  • By Wicking Moisture Away From the Body
  • Even When Under the Covers (with limited airflow)
  • Continuing to Work Even When Saturated
  • Maintaining Functionality Despite Washing and Drying
  • Without Trapping Heat Under the Garment

Pre-Menopause Symptoms Cause Hot Flashes and Night Sweats

Pre-menopause (perimenopause) and the resulting hormone imbalance symptoms often leave sufferers searching for the best hot flash and night sweats treatments. For various health reasons, including the risks involved with hormone therapies, many women are now seeking more natural methods to treat their hot flashes and night sweats. What is more natural than wearing a garment which is 80% cotton as a night sweats treatment method?

Women dealing with pre-menopause symptoms are not the only ones trying to find solutions to this uncomfortable scenario. Any type of hormone imbalance, such as menstrual cycle, pregnancy, and even menopause, can result in hot flashes and night sweats. Various illnesses and medications also cause night sweats and hot flashes.

Dry Babe® Sleepwear

Dry Babe’s® performance night sweat sleepwear is fun, flirty and affordable. It is also available in sizes ranging from 4 to 3X and comes in fuchsia, navy or turquoise. Several different garments are available including a kimono robe, a chemise, a night gown and a tank top with boy shorts.

Dry Babe® Philosophy

I am really impressed with Dry Babe’s® philosophy. They are dedicated to providing stylish sleepwear to women who are looking for ways to combat night sweats. They believe women should:

  • Always feel beautiful, at every stage of life
  • Be able to enjoy style and comfort
  • Have sleepwear that we enjoy wearing and feel good in
  • Have night sweat sleepwear that allows us to rest peacefully through the night

In Summary

In summary, Dry Babe® sleepwear performed so well I almost didn’t notice – if only all things performed so well. The garment runs true to size. It launders well, maintaining both its softness and vibrant color. It comes in a variety of styles, sizes and colors. The garment is comfortable to wear and did not bind with movement. I give Dry Babe sleepwear a big thumbs up!

From one hot dry babe to another, "Thanks, Wendy!"

      Sharyn - It seems to be more and more handy to have on as the nights go on. The nights that I do not wear it, are not nearly as restful as the nights that I do. Thanks so much!

      My night sweats are much milder now I am post menopause ... but they are still there. I would love a long nightie in this fabric ... but don't think it will be available in the UK.

      Thanks for the heads-up anyway, homestead ...
